Day 36: Procrastination


My grandmother had such beautiful words of wisdom

that are forever etched on my heart,

But there was one saying that I would cringe

as soon as she said it...

The road to hell is paved with good intentions

Ugh~

PROCRASTINATION!

Why do it now when I can do it tomorrow?

What are you PROCRASTINATING to do today?

Is it the same thing that you have PROCRASTINATED to do from yesterday?

Doesn't the sun procrastinate

when it could come out today

but doesn't come out until tomorrow?

What if

GOD

procrastinated "in the very beginning"

when HE said in Genesis~

"Let there be light "

&

"Let us make mankind in our own image ".

&

"It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

What if GOD procrastinated~

"For to us a child is born, to us a SON is given, & the government will be on HIS shoulders. And HE will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty GOD, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).

What if GOD Did Procrastinate~

then the road to hell would be paved with good intentions!

But GOD did what HE said HE would do

because

"GOD is not man, that He should lie,

or a son of man, that HE should change HIS mind.

Has HE said, and will HE not do it?

Or has HE spoken, and will HE not fulfill it? " (Numbers 23:19).

GOD will do what HE said HE will do

And

GOD did what HE said HE would do~

"But when the fullness of time had come, GOD sent forth HIS SON, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, GOD has sent the Spirit of HIS SON into our hearts, crying,

“Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through GOD." (Galatians 4:4-7)

And HIS SON didn't procrastinate when HE Said~

"The SON of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men.

They will kill HIM, and after three days HE will rise." (Mark 9:31).

Like FATHER like SON~

JESUS didn't procrastinate

so HE could give us a

a new road to walk down~

A HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN~

paved with love

to walk daily

with

HIM

to our final destination,

but only if we don't

PROCRASTINATE

to follow

HIM.

Well,

my grandmother was right~

my good intentions won't get me anywhere~

actually

somewhere where I don't want to go.

Therefore,

Let's

fast

from

PROCRASTINATION

and follow through with those good intentions~

by not only doing those daily things you have been putting off to do

But

first doing something you can't put off to do another time~

"that if you confess with your mouth the LORD JESUS & believe in your heart that GOD has raised HIM from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9).

Because the SON will not only come out tomorrow

Because

HE is here today.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, & I will give you rest"

(Matthew 11:28).
